plot

This looks at the shenanigans between the upper class folk and their downstairs servants in the household of Sir Henry Bludgeon-Plunger. There's his son Willie, who has just returned from an expedition up the Amazon, and his beloved daughter Lottie. Also on the scene is a randy old gal from Sir Henry's past called Lottie von Titzenhausen. Downstairs is watched over by the beady eyes of cook Mrs. Breeches and Butler Clodson who enjoy the fairly easy life they have built up. However, this is threatened when Sir Henry proposes to Lottie, who has threatened to reveal secrets that they would rather forget about.

review

A parody of the popular TV series 'Upstairs Downstairs'. You may think that this would give a good opportunity for laughs. It doesn't.
